This may be a strange question but I have tried for two days to go to www.java.sun.com. I keep getting a page cannot be displayed error in my browser. I can go anywhere else on the web. Has anyone else tried to go to the java.sun web site lately? If so, is it just something on my end or are others having trouble with getting into the site?

I guess this is why you should download the API documentation...

Works for me at this instant. And yes, that is why you should download the API documentation!

Hi,

Have you tried just going to http://java.sun.com/ (with out the www)? When I click your link that is what I am redirected to.

Good luck,
Tony

I like working in coffee shops, where wireless internet connections are not the most reliable. Having a local copy of the API is essential.

And yes, try it without the "www."

None of them are working for me (http or www). I have had the network administrator looking at this problem. Everyone inside the firewall is getting the same error (but none of us are having any problems at any other site... that we know of). As I am still learning, I go there often for the tutorials as well as the API. We went through a network upgrade recently and lots of stuff was moved around so I am sure that something inadvertant is cuasing the problem. Once I can get back in, I will download all that I can to avoid this in the future. Maybe they blacklisted our domain .

Thanks for your help.

Some corporations monitor access to the Sun Java site, including the one that I work for. This is to ensure compliance with licence agreements, etc.
You might want to investigate this possibility.

Maybe they know how I code and want me to go work for Microsoft!

That is a very good suggestion, Tony.

I had to get the API by logging into a client's Citrix server and downloading from there. Shhhh don't tell anyone.
